Hornet 7th Wins, 8th Loses Barn-Burner

SHELBYVILLE, IL. — Cowden-Herrick Jr. High basketball came close on Monday to getting a sweep for Christmas, but it was not to be. Hornet 7th beat St. Pat 7th, 52-27, but St. Pat 8th came back to beat the Hornet 8th, 49-48.

 Hornet 7th was led by Coltin Rauch, Kaleb Barfield and Brody Phillips, all in double figures. Rauch had a game-high 21 points, including a pair of 3-pointers. Barfield had 15, including 3-of-4 at the line. Phillips had 10 points, with one trey.

Rauch got off early with four of his nine baskets in the 1st. Barfield made two free throws, then three buckets to combine with Rauch for a 16-4 Hornet lead after one. They took the foot off the accelerator in the 2nd. Phillips scored three times and Barfield twice. St. Pat’s kept from falling further back, still 13 points back at the break, 26-13.

In the 3rd period the Hornets swarmed again on a 17-4 run. Rauch scored 13 of the Hornets 17 points. He opened with a trey, then a deuce. He hit another triple, then a two, then competing a 3-point play at the line. Phillips nailed a three and Hunter Watson made a free throw.

Leading by 26 points into the 4th, 43-17, the Hornets pulled in their stingers and still won by 25 at the buzzer. Barfield made a 3-point play Phillips split a pair at the line and Blaze Russell made 3-of-4 at the line then a two for all five of his points down the stretch.
